Hosta 'Bold Ribbons'

This hybrid of two unnamed seedlings was registered by Paul Aden of New York in 1976. According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), it is "...very similar to 'Neat Splash Rim' and 'Yellow Splash Rim'".

This plant grows into a medium size (15 inches high) mound with oblong-elliptic foliage that has a round base. The leaves are slightly wavy and very shiny underneath. Bright purple flowers bloom from late July into mid-August.

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009) states that this cultivar "...used to be a common sight in hosta collections, but it has declined in popularity in recent years. It shows a strong similarity to stable forms of 'Neat Splash' and 'Yellow Splash'."
